The book series was first published in 2005, and it follows the story of 12-year-old boy Percy Jackson living in New York. He discovers he has a god for a parent—Poseidon, to be exact—when he enters a camp for half-bloods like him. 

Percy and his fellow demigods' adventures have been featured on the big screen with the 2010's The Lightning Thief and 2013's Sea of Monsters. Both movies starred Logan Lerman in the titular role.
